Green Drinks was relaunched under the umbrella of Environment Centre Hawke's Bay. It is a grass roots, community event that is:
- An opportunity to come together (bi monthly) with like-minded locals to talk about sustainability and the environment.
- An opportunity to visit various local places, business premises etc. that have a great sustainability story.
- Organised locally for the benefit of locals.
- Non-profit (small charges may apply at some venues to cover costs).
- Run responsibly.
- Informal and fun!
Green Drinks is not:
- A forum for political persuasion or messages
- A channel to circulate news or announcements about environmental issues
- A sales opportunity for your business (but by all means share your knowledge)
- Heavy and depressing (we’ll focus on cool innovations, new and old products/services; actions and solutions rather than problems)
